Rep. Charlie Rangel on Guns:
‘Some of the Southern Areas Have
Cultures that We Have to Overcome’

Cybercast News Service, by Craig Millward

Original Article

Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.), speaking on “MSNBC Live” on Jan. 16 said that “some of the southern areas have cultures that we have to overcome” when it comes to gun control. Rangel was asked by anchor Thomas Roberts whether new gun control measures passed in New York State should serve as models for other states: “If you’re proud of what New York has done, obviously there is not going to be any perfect policy or perfect law that everybody is going to agree on from both sides saying that this is key perfection

Wow. This hateful, incompetent, corrupt old man would be apoplectic if a Republican had even thought of uttering a statement like that about a certain segment of society. These people are no longer humorous, they are dangerous and show their true intentions every single day.

He is a tax fraud and a liar. Even I know that
you CANNOT have any type of business in a rent controlled apt in NYC , and I have never lived there. and I also know you have to pay taxes on income from rental property. Obviously if you are elected to office the rules do not apply to you - the Rangel mandate. ( all my opinion ).
The culture we have to overcome is the corruption of people elected to Government offices.

FTA: obviously there is not going to be any ... perfect law that everybody is going to agree on

Yeah, well, "shall not be infringed" is in fact a principle set by the Founders above law. Everybody had better agree on observing it.

And someone who swore to uphold it to take office had blasted better well do so.

Dear Charlie,
I live in the south. I think thst most of the blue states have cultures that we have to overcome...and fast. Especially that thing where fools like you toss out the race card when you have nothing else to base your stupid accusations on.

Our rights were bestowed on us by our Creator.
The government has NO right to take them away.

He better watch what he says about those "gentle southerners". They are good people but they will not be roughshod run over by Rangel. He needs to clean his own backyard before coming down on others.

My take on history is that the bill of rights was written partly in order to keep the Southern states a part of the union. If any one of those first ten amendments is no longer upheld, then there is nothing else in the Constitution to keep the south as part of the union.

Charlie ol´ boy - here´s a tip for you...

I grew up in Manhattan - Upper East Side. By sheer luck, my Mother was from SC. I noticed *very* quickly after getting out of college, a person could live *very* well in the South for pennies on the dollar compared to NY city - and in a *far* safer environment.

You´re welcome to your Harlem hell-hole. I watched no end of ´social experiments´ fail to lift that area out of the danger zone, and visits back to the city confirm it´s worse now by far than when I left.

Tell ya´ what, Charlie...ya´ll come on down for a visit. We promise all the cornbread you can eat, and doubtful anyone would bust a cap on you simply for being black.

The South has the quality of life you bozos only dream of up there in your 200 square foot, $1000 a month taxpayer subsidized ghettos.

“some of the southern areas have cultures that we have to overcome”
OK Charlie, it is time to have a conversation about "culture". In fact, it is long overdue.
Exactly WHAT has YOUR culture of corruption and welfare done for America?
You insist on being called African-American, so please tell me WHAT the contributions to the betterment of World culture has the continent of Africa produced.
Single women giving birth over and over with different fathers, insisting that we owe them something, students who drop out of school at sickening rates, uneducated, non-parented wolf cubs who prey on law abiding society..all of them with their hands out..if you think you and your democrat friends are going to attack the Southern "culture" you should just shut up and go away now.
Folks, this is the Obama plan..to make the normal people appear extreme..fight back now!

"Southern culture to overcome?"
Sounds like Chollie is using his racist dog whistle again. Southern whites = guns.

How would Chollie react if I spoke about "watermelon and fried chicken eating culture"? Or "No Dad culture"? Or "Welfare Queen culture"?
Yeah, I think he´d bust a vein, rushing out to call me a racist.

This is another one the sleaze balls that at Reagan National on occasion. He is the definition of slimy. He just looks greasy and criminal. When he walks through the crowds, people rush away from him like a crocodile or something. He is absolutely disgusting and he wants to change our culture. I´ll take TN culture over NY anytime.

Seriouisly, change ´´southern areas´´ to ´´Poland and Austria´´, and tell me this doesn´t sound like the ramblings of the Third Reich in about 1938 or so.

Sorry, Charlie, but we in the ´´southern areas´´ won´t be blitzkrieged quite as easily as Poland was, and we sure as heaven won´t just bend over and take it like Austria did!!!!!

I just hope this criminal lives long enough to encounter a Republican who isn´t dirty, that will do a punishing audit on his ´finances.´ Start by flipping the parasites that benefited from his blatant corruption and work your way into this mess. Of course the IRS in general would have to be adjusted and I don´t see a Republican reformer anywhere with the moxie to do what has to be done. Perhaps his criminal associates will end up turning on him. It´s a long shot, but stranger things have happened.

Black males between ages of 18 and 39 constitute 2 1/2% of the population and committ 55% of all violent felonies. Maybe Mr. Rangel should first focus on "overcoming" that culture?

Obama administration’s ‘Culture of
intimidation’ seen in Nevada ranch standoff
Washington Times, by Valerie Richardson    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 10:09:44 PM     Post Reply
Sending scores of armed agents along with helicopters and dogs to confront an elderly Nevada rancher over grazing fees may seem like overkill, but critics say it’s not inconsistent with the federal government’s recent approach to environmental enforcement. The simmering truce between the Bundys and the Bureau of Land Management comes after high-profile raids last year by armed federal agents on small-time gold miners in tiny Chicken, Alaska, and guitar makers at the Gibson Guitar facilities in Tennessee. That doesn’t include more subtle threats, such as recent efforts by the Obama administration to raise grazing fees or pressure

Congressman: Obama ´Has Been Forced

Rep. Joe Garcia (D-Fla.) is among the Democrats pressing Congress to take up immigration reform. On Tuesday, he told a conference call that deportations are breaking families apart and leaving children in foster care. "So the human toll has been horrific. This president, by implementation of existing law, has been forced to deport a huge number of Americans." Although Garcia may consider the deportees to be "Americans," legally they are not. But they might become citizens if Garcia and other immigration advocates get their way. Democrats are urging Republicans to sign their discharge petition, which would force a House vote on

Key members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform expressed outrage at revelations made in newly released emails showing ex-IRS official Lois Lerner coordinating with the Department of Justice on prosecuting nonprofit groups. One committee member said the emails prove why the IRS is “scared to give up the rest of Lois Lerner’s emails.” IRS commissioner John Koskinen was recently threatened with contempt for stonewalling the committee’s investigation. Koskinen claimed in a hearing that it could take years to provide the documents requested by Oversight. “The release of new documents

Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Thank God for Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration J. Russell George. His investigation of what turned out to be the IRS abuse scandal may well have saved the Constitution and the nation. For his fair and impartial investigation into the Internal Revenue Service’s abuse of Americans who dissent from President Obama’s agenda, Democrats have called for an investigation of him. George should not be investigated, but perhaps the Democrats who want him investigated — Reps. Gerry Connolly (D-VA) and Matt Cartwright (D-PA) — should be. Their call for an investigation of the investigator might constitute interference with the ongoing investigation

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.
